Deemed ‘extreme risk’ nation, India denied entry into ITF World Junior Finals


The Indian staff has been denied entry into the upcoming ITF World Junior Tennis Finals in Prostejov as India has been categorized as ‘extreme risk’ nation in COVID occasions.

The Czech Republic Embassy right here has refused to difficulty visas to the gamers.

The All India Tennis Association (AITA) earlier this month named a three-member Under-14 boys staff comprising of Rethin Pranav RS, Kriish Ajay Tyagi and Tejas Ahuja for the distinguished event, scheduled to be held from August 2 to 7.

The AITA reached out to the Sports Ministry on July 17, looking for intervention within the matter and the SAI subsequently approached the External Affairs Ministry on July 19.

But the matter remained unresolved.

“It’s unfortunate. The boys needed exposure. If they had to deny us visas, why did the ITF enter our team in the tournament,” stated AITA secretary General Anil Dhupar.

India reeled beneath a horrific second wave of coronavirus however the state of affairs has improved now, prompting the central and state and governments to re-open the financial system.
